Around 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Oklahoma City officers attempted to pull over a maroon sedan near I-40 and Portland Ave.

The driver refused to stop and took off.

The chase led police through southwest Oklahoma City to Moore and even into Norman.

At some points during the chase, the driver reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.

When the chase reached Moore, a passenger in the vehicle jumped out of the moving car and surrendered to police.

Even though officers stopped chasing him, the driver continued to speed through red lights and stop signs.

Around 11 a.m., a Norman police officer picked up the pursuit and began chasing the suspect. Once the Norman officer became involved, the driver's speeds picked up.

When officers attempted to stop her with stop sticks, she took a turn off of Hwy 9 and headed south.

A short time later, officers hit the vehicle with a PIT maneuver, which caused the vehicle to go airborne and roll several times. The driver was pulled from the window since the door was shut, and two other people were pulled from the vehicle.

The driver was later identified as 27-year-old Daydrion Dennis. She was issued traffic citations and taken to a local hospital for injuries sustained in the crash.
